Reviews of : The Antidote by Oliver Burkeman PDF Book
Inside this Book – People often remark on how happy I always appear.- most of the time I have a smile on my face. And I must admit that my moods are fairly stable. But I’m definitely not one for always looking on the bright side of life, and I wouldn’t call myself an optimist at all. I’m also very sceptical, especially about psychological strategies to ‘get the most out of life’. I have encountered ‘postive psychology’ in my education studies and while I must admit that some aspects my be helpful, I cringe at the whole ‘put a smile on your face and deal with it’ kind of attitude. Positive psychological strategies come across as selfish, ignorant and just plain putting your head in the sand sometimes. So I came across this book on Audible and gave the demo a listen. The narrator, also the author, was not annoying and the short piece seemed to be intelligent. Therefore, on a whim, I purchased it.
Inside this book –The Antidote PDF Book by Oliver Burkeman – The Antidote is a series of journeys among people who share a single, surprising way of thinking about life. What they have in common is a hunch about human psychology: that it’s our constant effort to eliminate the negative that causes us to feel so anxious, insecure, and unhappy. And that there is an alternative “negative path” to happiness and success that involves embracing the things we spend our lives trying to avoid. It is a subversive, galvanizing message, which turns out to have a long and distinguished philosophical lineage ranging from ancient Roman Stoic philosophers to Buddhists. Oliver Burkeman talks to life coaches paid to make their clients’ lives a living hell, and to maverick security experts such as Bruce Schneier, who contends that the changes we’ve made to airport and aircraft security since the 9/11 attacks have actually made us less safe. And then there are the “backwards” business gurus, who suggest not having any goals at all and not planning for a company’s future.
